Caramel Apple Grunt

The last two days have been gorgeous, weather wise. It’s been in the fifties and sunny, with just a tiny breeze. I’ve thrown open the windows and we’ve all had a little extra fresh air. The kids have spent hours outside playing. I only wish this weather would hold, but here in Wyoming we have several more months of freezing cold weather. We often have one last snowstorm in April, so I can’t get my hopes up yet. Yesterday my daughter wanted to make supper and dessert. She’s five years old and a huge help. Except for the sharp knives and using the oven she pretty much made it all on her own. We had twice baked potatoes with ham and peas. For dessert, she made this gorgeous caramel peach grunt (which the kids have re-named grumble). The recipe came from Rustic Fruit Desserts which is chock full of yummy looking desserts. We will definitely be trying some more. On the 20 minutes a day of crafting front, I have been busy and will have some things to show you soon. I’ve been really enjoying this, it has forced me to get a few little projects done that have been in my head for a while. Do any of you have any projects that have been niggling away in your brain? Something small (or big) that if you just sat down and did it, would make your life a little easier?

    Yummmmm, do you think it would post well? Or indeed would your daughter post well? I could do with a hand on the domestic front. xxx

    Jenny, I needed a good giggle this morning, thanks. It was surprisingly easy to make and I loved that the whole thing was done in one pan. Now if only my kids were as enthusiastic about tidying up their messes as they were cooking……

    That pudding looks delicious!!
    Definitely a million things I want to make going on in my head, but I’d have to stop working to get it all done!

    It was just as scrumptious as it looks. The shining eyes of the little baker as dessert was served made it even more delicious! Baker extraordinaire in the making, I’ll bet!

    Hi, I’m visiting you via the 20 minuters. I certainly have a large on-going project that I picked up yesterday and made a start on again. The 20 minuters has renewed the interest for me, it’s great!
    Fantastic that your daughter enjoys creating in the kitchen. I must take a look at that recipe.

    Jennifer, good for you for letting your daughter in the kitchen. What a great way to teach her! Some moms wouldn’t let their kids cook just because of a mess. The grumble looks delicious!

    I took about 10 minutes the other day to babyproof my workbasket in the family room. It was so easy and has made my life so much easier!

    Your 20 minute idea is such a good one – similar themes for us today (although different topics) – small changes making a big difference…..it seems to be defining 2010 for me already! Thanks for your lovely comment earlier – have a good weekend x

  11. You have made my day! Just reading that you have really been enjoying your 20 minutes has made all the blogging and linking and clicking that I’ve had to do over the last week worth it!
    If it all stopped now, it was worth it, just to read that sentence. Thank you.
